Thread: Leap 42.1: torture for eyes

    Default Leap 42.1: torture for eyes

    I used OpenSuse 13.1 for a long time without any troubles(and without additional turning).
    But unfortunately there is strong discomfort for eyes with Leap 42.1.

    I 've tried to resolve the ussue by replacing defaul video driver with Nvidia one. No results and no ideas what to do else.

    My system:
    --------------
    Intel Core 2 Quad
    4 Gb Ram
    GeForce 8500 Gt
    Dual monitors :
    Philips 244E DVI 1920x1080 primary
    LG 20EN33 VGA 1600x900

    KDE plasma 5.5.5
    Qt 5.5.1
    kernel 4.1.20-11-default
    OS 64 bit

    Refrash rate = 60,
    Rendering backend = Xrender
    Font anti- aliasing = on


    I stuck with this.
    Please guide me how to configure the video-system to avoid the eyes anguish.
    Best regards.

    Unfortunately, this doesn't really give us any information about the
    cause - can you be more specific about what the video system is doing
    that's causing the discomfort?

    Jim, Thank you for response.

    Video card: GeForce 8500 GT
    Driver: x11-video-nvidiaG03 ver. 340.96-41.1
    Refrash rate : 60 Hz
    Rendering backend: Xrender
    Vsync: automatic

    Dual monitors :

    Sorry. I am not advanced user, that's all what I can extract from my PC.
    Could you clarify what kind info is needed?
    May be output of some terminal command?

    I'm not sure what you mean, I'm guessing the refresh rate is low and this bothers you, start the nvidia config application and set your preferred resolution and refresh rate.

    are your monitor's colours calibrated? do they seem off? 'cause you won't fix that by merely changing whatever driver you're using, btw.

    I_A,

    Yes, There is feeling as on old CRT monitor with low refresh rate, the eyes get tired very quickly.

    Resolution: 1920x1080, refresh rate: 60 Hz('auto' mode also available).
    It seems normal for LED display?

    Thanx xsalhelder

    Monitors are not calibrated. But there was not problems with old system.
    May be set to OpenGL as in OpenSuse 13.1?

    yes 60 is normal for lcd maybe try a different desktop, it could be plasma 5's color setup
    try lxqt it's small and fast and qt5 based
    Code:
    sudo zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/X11:/LXQt/openSUSE_Leap_42.1/X11:LXQt.repo
